In some instances, architects looked to nature to solve structural problems, like creating an earthquake-proof bridge by mimicking the long roots of a type of grass known for stabilising riverbanks.

Other examples show how nature provides artistic inspiration, like the famous buildings designed by Frank Gehry that evoke the beauty of moving fish.

The incredible structures in this book prove that nature and architecture are perfect partners.

Sidebar biographies tell us more about these famous architects who have used nature to spectacular effect in their designs.
